The 28-year-old began his post on social media with a verse from the bible.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)"

Faith is an intriguing thing and Luiz's dedication to religion is admirable, considering the temptations that footballers are generally exposed to.

Former Brazil international Kaka also waited until his wedding day at the age of 23 before having sex.
